Topanga Lookout Trail. Topanga, California.

20160130_104402_resizedStep out on to the large graffiti-covered concrete foundation at the site of the old fire tower. At a saddle in the Santa Monica Mountains 2,375 feet above the Pacific Ocean and 3 miles from the coast, the Backbone Trail crosses Stunt Road.

Topanga Lookout, the former site of a fire tower, stands above Red Rock Canyon Park and continues to offer fine views of the Santa Monica Mountains, Calabasas, and the Santa Susana Mountains. This hike to Topanga Lookout is 2 miles round trip with just 160 feet of elevation gain.

The views are wide and far. It is clear why this site was chosen to look over the mountains.


Very cool, hike below the fire tower leads to abandoned car and natural caves!
